Leading Dutch eLearning Specialist Launches South African Business

aNewSpring, a dutch-based learning technology company has announced the opening of its Johannesburg-based office with exclusive distributor, New Leaf Technologies. Announced at the recently held E-learning Insights 2017 conference in Johannesburg and Cape Town, aNewSpring co-owner, Rene Persoon, said that it was the ideal platform to unveil plans to launch aNewSpring Africa.


“We have been working with New Leaf Technologies for over a year. The company has been instrumental in the success of aNewSpring in Africa and we thought the timing was perfect to open a local office,” says Persoon.



aNewSpring is a market leading provider of online learning platforms with a ranking in the world’s top 50 learning platforms. Since it launched in 2003, aNewSpring has successfully focused on offering training providers tools to create inspiring learning journeys within the cloud.


“This is really good news for the South African industry,” said Paul Hanly, newly appointed Managing Director of aNewSpring Africa: “aNewSpring is an innovative company with a really inspiring product and I am delighted that they have the confidence to invest in the African market. We can now build long lasting relationships with clients as we’re able to provide local support, local onboarding as well as localised pricing. We’re not just another faceless cloud-based software solution. We are on the ground with a really good understanding of the African market.”



Persoon, who spent two weeks in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, is excited about the possibilities that Africa has to offer: “Africa is such an interesting place. I have met a vast number of people and there is so much potential. Our learning platform is ideal for this market where low bandwidth and high data costs are a reality. We deliver training providers and corporate academies in Africa the technology to build inspiring and effective learning journeys without having to use data-intensive solutions. We look forward to our clients using our platform to reach more people to upskill and cross skill. There is a definite need and with cutting edge functionality like adaptivity, personalisation, collaborative and blended learning with knowledge retention, aNewSpring can really make a difference.”


The aNewSpring learning platform has already been fully integrated with Sage X3 People, a leading HR management tool. The open Application Programme Interface (API) makes integration across a wide range of other HR and ERP systems very practical and relatively simple.
